With an engaging battle system, deeply customizable job system, and beautiful visuals and graphics, Octopath Traveler has a lot of wonderful parts. Does the total game exceed the sum of those parts or somehow fall short?
Members of the Bravely Default development team have a new pixel-graphic RPG.
Alright folks, it’s out so it’s time to feel out if the Dexit folks were right or wrong. We also hear about Path of Exile 2 and more RPG news than you’d expect at this time of year. But let’s be honest, we just want to go back to leveling up our starters.
We figured it would be a short show because there’s not a lot of news this time of year. Turns out Alex, Kelley, Peter, Chris, and Anna Marie still had plenty to discuss with their now playing, your feedback, and the upcoming releases including Pokémon.
This week, Anna Marie is so excited about Blizzcon that she totally forgets the order of the show! Chris, Kelley, Peter, and Josh somehow still cover what we’re playing, news, and new releases…eventually, anyways.
Jonathan crashes the RPGCast this week because he heard that Chris, Anna Marie, Kelley, Peter, and Nathan were dissing on Tactics Ogre. We also discuss child care our Now Playing. But don’t worry, while the news is slim, it’s also pleasantly robust.
Not much news, but there are many games out this week. We won’t play any of them though. Alice is on about Space Station 13, Kelley re-upped World of Warcraft, Anna Marie is playing Dragon Quest III, and Chris is still playing Final Fantasy IV.
While Chris destroys Anna Marie’s right joycon (press R to pay respects), the rest of the cast discusses their now playing, the news of the week, and there are still far too many games releasing every week. Please save us.

In RPGs, there are often two distinct yet important parts: a story to entertain and gameplay mechanics to engage the player. Octopath Traveler has Joshua questioning just how much he values those individual parts.
